However, back in 2012, Bale’s publicist Harrison Cheung revealed some shocking information regarding the actor’s feelings towards Leonardo DiCaprio. According to Glamour UK, Harrison spilled the beans in a tell-all biography, ‘Christian Bale – The Inside Story Of The Darkest Batman.’

In the biography, Cheung mentioned that Christian Bale would often cite Leonardo DiCaprio as his nemesis because Leo would often bag the roles that Bale went for. “DiCaprio. The name burned Christian like a branding iron,” Cheung wrote. “Over the years, Christian had lost This Boy’s Life and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape to DiCaprio,”

“Christian had read for the part of Mercutio in Romeo & Juliet but was told that they had decided to cast an African-American in the part instead,” the publicist wrote. “Christian too had gone up for the part of Jack Dawson in Titanic but was told that James Cameron didn’t want two British lead actors playing the two leads who were both supposed to be American,” Cheung stated.

He also mentioned that Leonardo DiCaprio always didn’t get the role. Christian Bale fought off competition from Ewan McGregor and DiCaprio for the lead in American Psycho. Harrison Cheung said that Bale became “obsessed” with the part. The report stated, “It was really creepy. He would call up and go, ‘It’sssssssss Patrick’ as soon as you answered the phone in that perfect American accent.”
